The limited options (paper, cover) offered by Blurb are frustrating / a blessing
”The relationship between the continuous / natural and the temporary / constructed”, if I must.
I don’t think I will put it up for sale, because I made it too expensive. The price to ask would be embarrasing.
I don’t think I will put it up for sale, because I’m unsure about the quality of the printing.

I wish I could have this properly printed and published, just to see what it would look like.
It feels nice to not strive for perfection, or to accept imperfections. I won’t have perfection, but I will have a book.
I like the fact that I enjoy creating something, while fully aware that only very few people will ever see it. For some reason I think that is important.
